South Australia's premier has accused Tony Abbott of indifference and complacency over Toyota's decision to stop building cars in Australia.
Jay Weatherill said the prime minister appeared to be suggesting that the closure of Toyota and Holden and the consequences for the car manufacturing industry will be "just dealt with in some fashion".
"That indifference and complacency is utterly inconsistent with the urgency and leadership role that is needed by governments at all levels," he told journalists on Tuesday.
He again called on the federal government to provide $333 million as part of the state's plan to overcome the loss of the car manufacturing industry.
"If Mr Abbott thinks that $60 million shared with Victoria is enough to support workers and maintain economic activity, he is sorely mistaken," he said.
The state's plan, which estimated that 13,000 SA jobs could be at risk, had taken into account the likelihood of Toyota closing, he said.
"Now that Toyota is going, it is even more important that there is a government prepared to take the lead, to instil the energy and activity that creates opportunities for business and creates jobs."
South Australia had 14 businesses, with about 700 workers, which were direct suppliers to Toyota, the premier said.
But there were hundreds more employees working for businesses that supplied the direct suppliers.
Mr Weatherill said Australia needed a manufacturing industry and the federal government needed to reconsider SA's jobs plan.
"It is much more costly to seek to build a manufacturing industry from the ashes, from one that has disappeared, than to transition one which already exists," he said.
